I’ve heard, you improved the profanity filter to be less intrusive, but now in the new patch my name is actually filtered: “Rudolfking”.
I don’t know in which language is this a curse, but can you whitelist it please? And how did this happen if the filter was made less intrusive?
Also it took me long minutes to realize why I cannot host a lobby: my name was in it… Okay you cannot do ****** ** ****** ** named lobbies, but you can add an error, that explains the reason instead of a greyed out button
(it would also be cool to report whitelistable words, so the community can improve the vocabulary)
Thanks! Keep up the good work, **********
(I mean Rudolfking)
I think the devs dont like the song ‘Rudolph the red nosed reindeer’
Lets stop joking: I really dont understand the filter. Way to much normal words seems to be banned for no reason at all. Even some common strategy names of the game are banned. I wanna explain the Persian Douche to my enemy, but i couldnt say that word. I also dont know why.
Devs think this issue is solved. They alrady closed the thread:
The filter is still bad. I would say: Make a new bug report about it.
I think they ban everything with f k i n g in the name. I cant say f k i n g without the spaces in between on this board. That rule makes your name ‘invaled’ to display into the game. You name ends with does letters
I tested quite a few (by typing in lobby chat) but got bored pretty quickly 11 Only one I found so far was Earl of Wessex, apparently ■■■ is a naughty word.
Please just give us a way to turn the censor off!
Hey guys i posted this as a new thread 2 weeks ago. Was merged to the topic here
and 5 days ago GMEvangelos just closed the thread while saying should be fixed with the april patch?! Sorry i just reported this because this is a new bug with the new patch.
Im actually a bit mad they just close the thread as done before even checking it. I just want to play with my normal and known nickname in the community again.
"Hey just want to report a false positive here…
my nickname technikalex, is getting censored ingame and in the lobby. its really annoying tbh and wasnt the case before the patch. 36906. also sometimes in rare cases my nickname is shown again normally. 1/20 chance.
would be nice to play again as technikalex and not as *********
Tbh i dont get the chat filter at all we are all adults and if ppl want to bypass the chat filter they will be able to do it so why investing so much work in that?"
OPTIONAL CENSORSHIP PLEASE! I am way over into my adulthood to have every 2nd sentence completely censored by your filter, sometimes 100% without reason. At least censor only the offensive word and not the complete sentence… I am sure most of the community would turn it off in a heartbeat
No, optional filter is bad I think. How would I know if others got my message or just see starts, because the filter is (frequently) broken?
It’s simpler: don’t apply it on names, or just filter the extreme ones. Earl or Wessex, Rudolfking, technikalex, these are not profane words, period. “I’ll **** you if you trush me” as a name is, I admit, but please fix this, it truly does not sound like a complicated thing.
What will be the next? In-game audio and text will be starred? Civ. names will be starred?
